2013 TRAINING CAMP THREAD

and KW looks like he put on quite a bit of muscle mass. Hopefully he still has that quickness.
It's interesting that I no longer see that read option photo at 49ers.com. And yes to a previous poster, I know the Pistol is a formation. From what I saw in the photo, that was certainly a read option, and it looked like Pistol to me as well. No surprise.

I guess they saw my post and removed the photo from the site? There were a few other photos of the offense that are gone now too. At least the photo is still in the history.
Anybody know if they're allowing DB's to contact the receivers as they're coming off the line yet?

Interested in finding out if Nhamdi is playing up closer to the line and getting a quick shot in as the Receiver comes off the line. I would be encouraged to hear the 9ers are going to allow him to return to the style of play that seems to fit him best. The no pads/no contact camps showed nothing of his current form.

We need to draft a CB early in the draft.

reports are he does, great news with him being active and back to speed. that kid has been through alot and while people continue to try to bury him or cut him, he just keeps coming back. he is like the mike wilson of the old days, only more valuable due to his return ability

Man I forgot about how Grant Cohns articles always differ radically with everyone elses.


He actually had some pretty positive comments about Boldin (duh), Culliver, something about Marlon Moore and even Reid. Had some criticism of Kap (don't get it) and of course Jenkins which is no surprise. When it comes to Grant Cohn he usually has some decent insights, but I remember him saying before the draft that Ryan Swope (Texas A&M) was a good draft option for WR. Swope, picked by Cards, just retired before ever getting started. Cohn = not smarter than Harbaalke.

Cohn = not smarter then a 3rd grader
I'm sure you've all see this but loved this little tid bit from Barrows training camp update....

• Is Justin Smith 100 percent recovered from from a torn triceps? You might want to ask LaMichael James. The tailback took a toss to his left Thursday afternoon, ran to the outside and - WHAM! - seemed to hit a brick wall and bounced backward. Guess who was standing there? http://www.sacbee.com/2013/07/26/5598580/49ers-training-camp-1-jenkins.html#storylink=cpy

Its no secret that this guys health and availability is key to our teams success. Here's to hoping he and Aldon return to form and once again dominate the pass happy qb's of the league!! GO NINERS!!

Justin is still a brick wall if he had no arms and sat in a wheel chair. If he can take part in 75% of the snaps, as opposed to 90%+, he will have a fantastic season.

however more depth is needed along the front line. we can not just "hope" like we did in 2011 that we will stay healthy. we saw what happened last year when the injuries hit the smith boys and brooks

While I hate to defend Cohn, it's than*. Never try and trash someone else's intelligence while using words improperly.

KW must have lifted some strange liquid weights...
Kyle Williams hauled in a wobbly throw from rookie B.J. Daniels. Williams took a step, fumbled the ball but quickly recovered.


Ugh.

Hang on to that damn ball kid!

Dude, 1st day of (unpadded) TC and he won't be catching passes from Daniels when it counts. They will fumble in regular games, but hopefully not that much.
'Kyle Williams' and 'Fumble' in the same sentence struck a nerve.
Thats all.
